How to make your own black hat chimneys

I had a bit of a hard time deciding which one I wanted to buy for my new Black Hat costume. 

I liked the look of the chimneys from the chimney cap to the hoodie, but the hoodies seemed to be the more affordable option. 

Then I realized I could make my own chimney caps and the price seemed to fall in line with the price of a black hat. 

The chimney kit I bought for my costume included a pair of 3″x3″x2.5″ PVC pipe with a 1″ diameter and a 1.5″-1.75″ tall diameter. 

This was the base that I put all the pieces on. 

All I had to do was drill holes into the base and place all the piping and screws into the holes. 

 I used a piece of 4″x4″ PVC tubing to make the base. 

I drilled and tapped the hole on the base to accept the PVC piping and screwed the base in place with some screws. 

Then I used the base as a base to hold the chimnies. 

To hold the pieces together, I used a small piece of wood and a drill bit. 

The wood held the PVC pipes together as well as the screws and screws that I attached to the PVC pipe. 

This was the final piece to hold everything together. 

Next, I glued together the pieces of PVC pipe and PVC tubing. 

Each piece of PVC was cut to the length of the pipe and glued to the base with epoxy. 

Using a drill and screwdriver, I drilled a small hole through the PVC to attach the pieces to the pipe.

Then I added some glue to the top and bottom of the PVC. 

Once the glue was dry, I stuck the PVC into the hole and screwed in the PVC on top of the pipes. 

Now it was time to attach everything. 

After glueing everything together, it was all ready to go. 

When I was done, I wrapped everything up and placed it in the black hat! 

This would have been a perfect Halloween costume if I had just bought the black hats and the black chimneys for $5 each. 

Instead, I decided to spend a little more on the black beanies and the chimkin hats. 

As the Black Hat Costumes are available for purchase through and other sites, you can find them for less at these sites: Black Hat Cosplay at Amazon.

If I had bought a Black Hat Mask and Black Hat Beanie for the same amount, I would have bought an entire Black Hat Cosplayer.
